Summary

Green Engineering working in a joint consultancy with HAZCO Canada, conducted a project to abate, package and ship 25 tonnes of DDT and other pesticide contaminated wastes for final destruction by incineration in Alberta Canada. The DDT was consolidated from various storage locations around Trinidad & Tobago, and re-containerized into two (2) 40 foot containers at the NIPDEC Warehouse in Chaguaramas for shipping to an HTI Incinerator in Alberta, Canada. Local workers employed with the Solid Waste Company and Local Government Ministry were trained in HazWOpER as part of a technology program which formed part of the Terms of Reference (TOR) for this project.
